Weston’s Library needs your help!  Our 200-year-old building has been our home for over 100 years.  It lacks a bathroom and running water. To bring the library into the 21st century, we are working on a strategic plan to help build Weston’s library of the future – a library that is a vibrant and important community asset.

Please take a few minutes to complete this quick survey by August 1, 2021. Whether you currently use the library or not, your responses will help define the services and programs you would like to see in the library of the future. If you have multiple household members, please have all members complete a survey either online or by picking up additional paper copies at the library or Weston’s post office. 

We want to hear from everyone – because after all, this is YOUR municipal library. We will publish the responses and give the community more ways to have input in the plan later this summer. Thank you!
